This 60-minute film showcasing the science and beauty of seeds, was produced by ISU Seed Science Center director Manjit Misra. It debuted in March at the Environmental Film Festival in Washington, D.C.

The film's purpose is to make seed science accessible to a wide audience and inspire a new generation to take an interest. It takes viewers to locations including India, Africa, the Iowa State campus, the World Food Prize in Des Moines and Iowa farms.

It can be viewed as a single, hourlong presentation or as a series of six segments of roughly 10 minutes each. The segments cover a range of seed-related topics, including the role seeds play in everyday life, how seed technology can lead to more nutritious food and how the genetic material contained in seeds is stored in a global network of seed banks.
